Surnames: Harris
John Harris is my gggg grandfather. His son Obadiah (my ggg grandfather) born 16 May 1814 died 15 Feb 1901 was married to Susanna Martin born 03 Aug 1828 in Tennessee died 17 Jun 1911. I don't know if Obadiah had any other siblings. They had children John Harris (b.1852), Patrick H Harris (b.1854 d.1937), William F. Harris(b.1858), Edmund Price Harris - my gg grandfather) (b.07 Apr 1862 Missouri d. 15 Feb 1948), George L Harris (b.1865), twins Collen Harris and Nolen Harris (b.1868).

Edmund Price Harris married Cora Edna Banes. They had 11 children including Claud Lacy Harris (my great grandfather b. 31 Jul 1897) who married Lavisa Wear and had a child Ralph Harris (my grandfather).

I have a photo of Claud but would very much like photos of Edmund, Obadiah, John or William or any related Harris'. I am making a memory album for my grandparents.

Thanks in advance for any more info or photos!
